Binding made before quilting

Sometimes I make the binding for a quilt right after I'm done piecing the top.  That way, I insure that the binding will match the outside border.  If I wait too long, I'm likely to use up the material for something else.  When I'm done pressing the binding in half, I roll it up and place it in a baggy.  Here's the binding all ready for the graduation quilt I'm making for my granddaughter.

When I make a quilt top for Connecting Threads, they always ask me to make the binding, and I use the same idea.  

Putting it into a baggy makes it easy to sew onto the quilt later, as it easily rolls out of the bag and doesn't drag all over my dirty studio floor.  

I hope you have some good tips to share with your quilting friends too!
